A Triptych presents three intense narratives set in distinctly diverse yet paradoxically convergent worlds, tailing the trajectory of some very unusual bonds: a scavenger, living off the street rejoices in his dark life, covertly watching from his post, a desolate painter whose life is no more than a blank canvas. Their lives are connected by a common fascination for the unknown, and there are startling secrets waiting to be unmasked a young, city-bred girl on a visit to her native village to finalize the sale of common ancestral property is drawn to a neglected ‘statue’ staring unblinkingly at the horizon, perhaps astigmatic like Van Gogh, perhaps an artist and a philosopher slowly defining his vision; a little boy from a sleepy hamlet with a disturbing past and an insignificant present discovers an unusual and enigmatic visitor, who he ‘adopts’ as his own, courting some unforgettable experiences that distill haunting memories for a lifetime.Printed Pages: 124.

Inhaltsangabe: "A Triptych" presents three intense narratives set in distinctly diverse yet paradoxically convergent worlds, tailing the trajectory of some very unusual bonds: a scavenger, living off the street rejoices in his dark life, covertly watching from his post a desolate painter whose life is no more than a blank canvas. Their lives are connected by common fascination for the unknown, and there are startling secrets waiting to be unmasked. What makes this collection of three novellas a triptych is the intriguing carry over, from one narrative to another, of an intense mystery that not only negotiates unexpected twists, but defies the reader's imagination, each time, with its atypical denouement.

Buchbeschreibung Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, United Kingdom, 1995. hardcover. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Good. First Edition. These far-reaching essays offer a serious and thought-provoking account of the complexities of cross-cultural interpretation. Bringing together such eminent voices as Bellow, Solzhenitsyn and Cather with others less well known to American readers - Russian and Canadian writers Natalya Baranskaya, Lydia Chukoskaya and Ethel Wilson, and Americans Arlene Heyman and Meridel Le Sueur - Blanche Gelfant deals with matters of weighing and judging - of 'essaying' in its primary meaning. The consequence is a gathering of new essayistic forms for criticism which invite, indeed demand, cross-cultural conversation; which engage matters of wide current interest; and which challenge conventional critical approaches. Cross-Cultural Reckonings holds broader implications for a range of issues in literary criticism, but perhaps most explosively for the visions and revisions invoked by shifting notions of nationality, and the unpredictable attitudes towards gender and sexual difference entertained by the field of literary criticism at large.
